    what changed about a week ago? lift wheels tires... your driving style at that speed it could be a lot of stuff. is it on all roads or did they just repave the road right infront of your house?

    cheapest guess is just get your tires re-balanced. Mine did that only between 50-60mph, re-balanced my tires and it went away.

    Wouldn't be tire balance 0-15mph. How many miles are on the truck? Even the new trucks are prone to take-off vibes. If it hasn't been present until now, I would check/lube your u-joints and chack all the trans mounts. Take a look at the carrier bearing and make sure everything look OK. There is also a TSB for the rear trans mount to "fix" take-off vibes if it is still under warrentee. If it makes you feel any better, my '09 has done that since day 1. Sort of wierd that it just started for you though...

    You would think..Just a guess but possible. I agree with 06redtacoma regarding questions about changes since the issues started. I would put the truck on stands and check all tires, loose lug nuts, swaybar,driveshaft, etc....

    Unless you have a flat spotted or otherwise out of round tire/wheel, there wont be issues until balance issues start to show at high speed. At low speeds, balance is not in play. If it was a bad tire/wheel, it would be present through the entire speed range. Just trying to keep him from wasting time/money. Sounds mostly like driveline.

    Just wanted to give an update. took it to the dealership cause the vibrations just kept getting worse and all three universal joints were bad. had them replaced and got an alignment done and she rides like new again!!!
